Another week of filming on Woody Allen’s 2015 film finishes up. The production started the week in Newport, then moved to Beavertail National Park. It continued onto Salve Regina University then Cranston. It ended up at West Greenwich where stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix were captured on camera having a kiss.
Here’s a pic of Stone from Newport earlier in the week.

Allen was also spotted in Newport, near the Seamen’s Church Institute.
We are transported to the area where they are filming at the Salve Regina University campus, and the assistant director places us in position and tells us where to stand and walk. We are supposed to be casual students on our way to class, meandering around campus. And that’s when it happens; Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix walk right by me and start talking a foot away from me. My heart stops, and I want to shout that I love Emma’s hair, but I keep quiet because it is an unspoken rule that extras do not speak to the stars, unless spoken to. It is insane how long it takes to film a two-minute scene, and we reset the scene and reshoot the same scenario anywhere between five and ten times.
She confirms Stone is playing a student. Phoenix’s role is more mysterious – he seems to be a young professor or an older student.
Also, according to Salve Regina’s Facebook, Allen will return there on the 11th and 12th of August for ‘classroom’ scenes.
